While the Facebook phone idea never really took off (you don’t read of news items dedicated to the sales figure of the HTC ChaCha, do you?), that does not mean there isn’t a sizeable amount of HTC ChaCha owners out there who do make full use of their handsets to keep in touch with their immediate social network, so it makes perfect sense for an Over The Air (OTA) update as well as a processor upgrade to be thrown into the mix, no?

The HTC ChaCha has already arrived at Europe, where it will sport a front-facing full QWERTY keyboard that makes it a snap to insert text, including a host of interface enhancements which would keep any social networker smiling from face to face. 

Originally meant to be accompanied by a 600MHz Qualcomm CPU, it seems that HTC has decided to increase the clock speed by another 200MHz, and perhaps that could be because HTC decided 800MHz was the way to go if they want to maintain a balance between stellar battery life as well as performance. 800MHz would clearly place this in the lower end side of things compared to other newer Android smartphones that run on at least 1GHz with dual cores for some.
